  • Breakfast visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus nourishes the soul

    Girls and boys dressed in their holiday best waited excitedly for their chance to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus on Saturday at the fifth annual Breakfast With Santa.

    The Evergreen Lake House was filled with children of all ages and their parents, who ate a breakfast of pancakes, eggs and sausage, followed by a wait in line to sit on Santa’s lap.

    Cameras were in abundance as Santa and Mrs. Claus posed with the kids.

    It was a fun day for the 250 people who attended the event sponsored by the Evergreen Downtown Business Association.

    King-Murphy Elementary School was closed Tuesday after a small fire in the boiler room on Monday forced students and teachers to be transported to Clear Creek High/Middle School.

  • Skier Duke is working her way back

    It’s not every day that a 2010 Olympian walks around Idaho Springs, but that’s where skier Hailey Duke was last week. Actually, she was just stationed there while commuting up to Echo Mountain for a couple of days of warm-up runs before she seeks to complete the biggest comeback of her life.
    “We always have to come to Colorado during this time of the year. It’s got the best skiing and best training leading into the first race of the season,” the 28-year-old Sun Valley, Idaho native said.

  • Elmgreen is Evergreen's heartbeat

    It was an atypical situation for Emily Elmgreen. The 5-foot-9 guard had never been put in the role of being a leader for the Lady Cougars’ girls basketball team before. So it was certainly a learning experience to say the least, but she embraced it wholeheartedly.

  • November: a time to remember, a time to act

    By Ellen Golombek

    Before he served in Congress and before he went to the White House, Lt. John F. Kennedy commanded torpedo boats in the South Pacific during World War II. His distinguished military career resulted in being awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal and the Purple Heart. He was proud of his service and once said, “I can imagine no more rewarding a career.”

  • Plea deal makes sense for Holmes

    It’s time to make a deal with James Holmes.

     

    As we approach the year and a half anniversary of the tragedy of the Aurora theater shootings and as the pretrial hearings continue (and continue and continue!), it looks less and less likely that Holmes will ever be executed. It would be in the public interest to get some kind of plea in place that assures Holmes will spend the rest of his life in custody, to achieve final resolution and to put this ordeal to bed once and for all.

  • Wild turkeys are thankful they’re not extinct

    While we have many things to be thankful for, I think the wild turkeys must be thankful for being alive because these big, beautiful, wild birds came very close to extinction.

     

    This great American bird was fairly common over much of America and was taken to Europe in the early 16th century where it was domesticated and became a very popular dish. In America, it was also very popular, but there were no domestic turkeys to buy at the market.
